The story with Intel is they will do their own thing, and can stay independent of HMC. Check out the latest word out on Haswell's L4 cache - it's actually DRAM made by Intel itself (on its 22 nm trigate process).
I don't think HMC benefits or benefits from NV since larger latency and less frequent access may be expected. But if there is a new type of memory that is very much like DRAM working memory (maybe STT?) perhaps it could be considered as well.
Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
